Great to see that you've started working on this again. Last weekend I
ended up working on this too together with Reinder E.N. de Haan <reinder at mveas.com>
(added to the Cc).

We took a slightly different approach for the gates clocks, see:


And specifically:


Combined with:


This deals with the per gate parents the same way the rockchip
clock code does, and it seems to be quite a bit less code then your solution.

So now we've two solutions to chose from :) Since you seem to be back to
working on this I'll refrain from doing any further work, at least
without coordinating. Maxime, can you let us know which solution for the
gates clock parents is best, or tell us if you think both solutions are
no good :)

(I wanted to get in touch with you about the work done this weekend,
but your posting of this v3 has sorta pre-empted that).

Other then the slightly different solution for the gates, the code in my tree
is a straight forward port of your v2.

Thanks for your work on this!




I'm teaching a kernel driver course at my local hackerspace in the netherlands:


Which is where our work on this this weekend originated. The next planned
course day is November 1st and I expect Reinder to be working on the H3
again then. I think the plan was to tackle USB next. Reinder can you confirm
this ?  If you (Jens) want to work on USB before then, that is fine, but please
coordinate their is plenty to do, so no need for us to be doing (more) double
